Wiring of bare copper wire in a light fixture
Thanks, all of you. The previous (older) fixtures didn't have a grounding wire. And the bare copper (house) wire in one box was attached to a mounting screw and in the other box wasn't attached to anything. So I suddenly (late last night) started wondering if I should have first run them to a mounting screw and then to the fixture's ground wire.
So, now I'm still confused. The boxes are metal. Can I cap them directly together, or do I need to run the bare copper wire to a mounting screw (or purchase a green grounding screw) first before capping them together?
